Vinh Long (VNA) – The Mekong Delta province of Vinh Long and the Netherlands share numerous similarities that facilitate bilateral cooperation in food processing, agricultural food and food service supply.

Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Nguyen Van Quang made the remark at a workshop on establishing linkages in agricultural production based on a model of Food Valley Group from the Netherlands on June 14.

At the event, Roger Van Hoesel, CEO of the Dutch firm introduced their linkage chain and discussed cooperation opportunities with the province, including human resource training, technical transfer, food processing techniques and farm management.

Despite strengths in agriculture, the province should work to enhance product quality while applying more automatic processing chains, he added.

Quang expressed his hope for more visits and working sessions between the company and the province to share information and experience, thus setting up a Food Valley Group-based linkage chain in local agricultural production.-VNA
